The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they will play eight preseason games prior to their Oct. 27 season opener vs. Milwaukee, highlighted by the teams matchup against Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami HEAT in the New Orleans Arena on October 13.

The Hornets begin the preseason with a home contest against Rudy Gay and the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, Oct. 9, followed by a road matchup against Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic on Sunday, Oct. 10. The Oct. 10 game will be the first ever basketball game played in Orlandos brand new Amway Arena.
